The price of lpg is increasing here too currently 53p per litre (approx $4:70 a gallon) a lot cheaper than the super unleaded at £1:25p per litre (approx $11:10 a gallon) !:wtf1:
Makes me want to move elsewhere ha ha
Wonder what the fuelbill is going to be when the V8 hilux hits the street?
Zuffin, yes there are plenty of liquid items that are more pricy then gas. but keep in mind you dont drink 20gallons of coke. a week, or use 20gallons of car polish, water can be free, its just a little pricy if you choose to buy the fancy chilled version at a store. but still wile on a 20 mile drive that i have a water or coke with me i may drink half a liter of my drink but my car has consumed a gallon of gas. I do a 20 mile drive to work and 20 miles back home each day. I do not drink or eat nearly the same if you look at it in cost, they also dont go up in price every day.
Imagine what you would look like if you consumed Coke at the same rate your car consumes fuel.
You would need a truck to carry yourself around.
I guess what I was getting at is most of those other liquids are easy to transport, produce and certainly aren't taxed like fuel so fuel is actually quite cheap litre for litre.
I worked out the difference between my wife's V8 Mercedes and the 2ltre version of the same car equates to around $800.00 per year in extra fuel expense. Yet the little engined car will depreciate 3 times fastr than her V8.
Premium gas in the USA should reach $5.00 per gallon by the end of the month according to consumer reports... Right now it's just over $4.50 per gallon.. This has got to hurt those boosted motor owners for sure... OUCH!!!!
I am looking at buying a motorcycle to fart around town and save some mulla at the pumps...It's summer time anyway.... It's getting bad when you almost pay $100 to fill up everytime in your SC400 and or Soarer....That just sucks when you remember not to long ago it was just $50 to fill up... I fill up atleast once a week too..:kabong:
Ok, I will stop complaining, beaatching, and whinning as I know our overseas friends are paying almost twice that much...
Ps.. A close friend whom lives in the UK (Manchester, England) says petrol at the pumps just reached $10 per gallon (converted to US measuring gallon and $) and a boycot is planned for the upcoming weekend not to drive vehicles... He just emailed me on this... Crazy....
a friend of mine just bought a little scooter for 100$ and put about 30$ twords repars, it gets 120miles to the gallon, he's had it for just over a month and has filled it up once. 3 gallon tank.
I shouldnt compain tho. i drove to jacksonville fl and back last week. 3 hours each way, all highway no stops all at about 80mph no hard pulls, in the 1uz supra, it managed a wapping 33mpg. man i hope my math is right, well it couldnt be too off, i have a 10gallon fuel cell in the car and it wasnt empty at the end.
Yeah, my good friend also has a little vintage scooter that he farts around town in and it gets like a 100mpg also.. It also goes 60mph on the freeway...
However, I just can't see myself getting around on a little scooter with a little gay matching helmet and all..... Pride alone wont allow me to cruise around town on one of those.. For me it would have to be a hog or a crotch rocket if anything on two wheels if I were to do so.. That's just me though, no offense to all those scooter owners.....
